anyway, at least the original chin ho and kono were local actors.

while the new 5-0 has asian actors playing asian characters, they're not local.
You can watch the original 5-0 tv series on the freevee channel now. I'm on season six now. They used the same known local actors who appeared in many episodes in bit parts. Lippy "Hella on bruddah" Espina, Lucky "Sweetbread" Luck, Checkers of Checkers & Pogo, Professor Fun, and Carole Kai appeared in a lot of episodes. The show also cast local newscasters besides Al Michaels. Tim Tindall, Bob Sevey, Bob Jones, and Bob Basso. Bob Basso had a big part in one episode where he played it over the top as an organized crime head.

@Walkoff Balk:

For Boomers like me, the original Five-0 series ('68-'80) can't be beat. That was a better Hawaii back then. All new series are imposters; they can never replicate the Hawaii we remember from '68 to '80.

I was just comparing him to the old five 0 character. I didnt know thats the same guy that hosted Iron Chef.
Did you know the original Wo Fat wasn't Chinese?

Also nevermind Iron Chef, I can't be the only one that saw Only the Strong, or Double Dragon. He was also The Crow in the short lived TV series.
Khigh Dheigh, the original Wo Fat was Anglo, Egyptian, and Sudanese ancestry.
Ancient Chinese Secret. Can that commercial be shown today?

Joe Moore called sportscaster Lex Keiter, The General. Lex Keiter played a General on the tv series.

Ten years and that body never hit the ground...Heh,Heh!
I've been binge watching the original Hawaii Five O series. So, you can spock and chuckle when they use the same local actors and same scenes on the show. There was one scene where they're rushing to a crime scene and there's the same people waiting at the crosswalk used over and over.

I don't understand that when a criminal is surrounded by Five-O. He decides to try to shoot his way out to escape. Why not just give up and face a lenient Hawaii court?

I guess talent was thin back then. Al Harrington played the bad guy and then was a cop on Five-O. I think a few others had multiple roles.

Newscasters Joe Moore and Tim Tindall made cameo appearances in the opening scenes where they got killed. Tim Tindall was a military man who was walking down the street and then went into an elevator and was killed. Joe Moore was a scuba diver who just got out of the ocean and then was shot. Joe Moore later got more screen time where he played the partner of a small plane business with John Ritter(Before Jack Tripper). Rap Replinger played an employee of the business.
